How time flies

Driving home from dinner last night, I spotted a car with the same number plate. My number plate starts with the numbers 37, so I struck up a conversation with CH.

"Did you know that when we first met, you were only 37? Now you're 43. We've been together for 6 years! At that time, I didn't think we could last for a year."

CH said, "Oh??"

"Imagine if we had a child, she would be starting primary one in January. I'm sure we would have a daughter because you have 6 nieces and no nephews!"

Of course CH pooh-poohed my logic. "It has nothing to do with genes lah, it's all random!'

"But still... cannot be so coincidental right?" I said.

"My brother has 3 daughters and my sis has 3, it not that each one has 6."

What started out as a romantic conversation ended up being a scientific one. I ended up saying, "Anyway I'm too old to have kids now."

It has been 6 long years since we first met. We were slim and athletic with a head of natural brown hair. Now that we're kinda pudgy, I'm glad we met when he was 37.

You're not pudgy. You're womanly and luscious. And CH... from what I see... looks positively skinny.

I agree with petunia. Both of you are NOT pudgy! And CH is definitely more fit than R2, who has a little bit of a belly (which I love) HI HI HI...

Blur Ting said...

Oh, we're definitely pudgier than before!

Actually this is quite a positive post in my view - I mean, at least you didn't meet him when he is 75 without any front teeth, and vice verse. The timing is perfect actually.

Sorry CH, I will say having 6 nieces has everything to do with genetics though.

there is not one ounce of pudge on you-- and you know that! :))

i would like to throw my two cents into the science aspect here tho-- can i? it is actually a proven fact.. the man does "determine" the gender of the baby. some have all girls or all boys -- some get lucky and mix it up a little. don't ask me how they came to that conclusion , but i have heard/read it many times and places.

anyhow blur -- very happy to see you at my place -- just came by to say hello in your corner of the world :))

hope everything is runnin great for you
